Southern California music hub Non Projects has a couple new, um, projects in the works from one of its most promising artists and label boss, Anenon. "Acquiescene" is taken from a five-track EP of the same name, which is apparently a "companion piece" to producer Brian Simon's forthcoming Inner Hue LP. What strikes us first and foremost about the track is its outright musicality; there are so many ideas and elements—jazz, classical music, ambient, hip-hop, and more dancefloor-oriented electronics—interwoven throughout the five and a half minutes Simon crafted. (Incidentally, he made this one while at Red Bull Music Academy 2011 in Madrid, and it will also appear on RBMA's forthcoming Various Assets compilation.) We'd guess there's plenty more of that to come when Anenon's new EP and LP drop on March 27 and May 1, respectively.
